Currently (v1.2.10) it is possible to specify a configuration file for log4net by adding a key like this in the host application's configuration <appSettings> section:
<add key="log4net.Config" value="Log.config" />
This defaults to invoking XmlConfigurator.Configure() on the file specified (log4net/Core/DefaultRepositorySelector.cs, line 725). This means the file is not watched for changes during program run time.
It would be nice if there was some way similar to the above <appSettings> key to specify whether log4net should watch the file or not.
I might propose that a new key is introduced in this fashion:
<add key="log4net.Config.Watch" value="true" />
This key would denote a bool value defaulting to false. The value would only be taken into consideration if the "log4net.Config" key is specified.
I am away on vacation until Monday, October 10, 2011. I will not be
able to read your email and respond until I get back.
Thank you for your patience.
